Studio Audience – Series Three, Episode 15 with Damien Hirst, thieves and Tate Britain

Posted by James Cartwright,

Take that week, it’s Friday now which means we’ve basically got you in the bag. Sure you threw some real curve balls our way, like the incessant morning rain and some of the most depressing current affairs we’ve read about in ages, but we kept our heads held high and we reckon we made the best of you. To celebrate we’ve done a podcast (that’s an exaggeration, we do one every week) and it’s packed full of the finest light-hearted art and design chat you ever did bleedin’ hear. We’re on top of our game! (mostly)

Section One

  • Pod2

    Hall Of Femmes

Section one saw us discussing Damien Hirst’s uncharacteristically controversy-free appearance on Desert Island Discs, taking a quick look at this week’s Hall of Femmes conference in Stockholm, and wondering whether the World Press Photo of the Year winner could possibly be a fake. We also touched on the ridiculous story of a former V&A curator who spent 40 years stealing from the museum’s vast archive and the recent posters commissioned by Art On The Underground.

Section Two

First we talked about Tate Britain’s recent decision to remove their explanatory panels in the gallery, reducing the amount of information that visitors have immediate access to. The move comes as part of a large-scale overhaul of Tate Britain’s curation policy. And in honour of Will and Rob’s day spent in a secret bunker judging this year’s D&AD student awards, and the launch of our very own Graduates awards, we wondered if there really is a fair way to judge and award student work.
